The Estee Lauder Company is not new to breast cancer initiatives. In 1993, Ms. Evelyn Lauder, vice-chairman of the Estee Lauder Companies founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This year, the Company announced its global 2010 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, Connect. Communicate. Conquer Campaign, Prevent Breast Cancer One Woman at a Time. Wear It. Share It. They will sell 20 Pink Ribbon products through 14 of its beauty brands (Aveda, Bobbi Brown, Bumble & bumble, Clinique, Darphin, DKNY, Donna Karan, Estée Lauder, Jo Malone, La Mer, Lab Series Skincare for Men, Michael Kors Fragrance, and Origins). The goal is to reach 2 billion people in more than 70 countries. Read more here.
The Estee Lauder Company states they "are making more progress than ever and reaching more people each year with the message that if localized breast cancer is detected early, it’s 98% curable. While the American Cancer Society estimates more than 1.3 million people worldwide were diagnosed with breast cancer, the good news is that mortality rates continue to fall, and we believe this is due in part to better treatments, early detection and greater awareness of the importance of breast health. But we must continue to persist and pursue, and raise as much money for research as possible, to attain what we all believe is possible in our lifetime – a world without breast cancer."
The campaign runs through the month of October. There are a few ways you can support the cause through its Clinique brand:
1). You can purchase a product where proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
2). When you purchase a Clinique product, you can donate directly to BCRF at the check out counter.
3). You can take your pledge to support breast cancer awareness.

Then I thought, how many women didn't get that same result. So, in honor of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which follows behind heart issues as a leading cause in women's health, I'd thought to post a perfect purse edition that support breast cancer. Every woman needs a special clutch to call her own for a special occasion and if it supports a 'something' then all the bettah!
Lauren Merkin took her popular Diana clutch for Breast Cancer Awareness month and is donating 50% of the sale proceeds from the purse during October to benefit Young Survival Coalition .
The Diana Clutch is perfect. Encrusted with a Swarovski crystal and we all know Swarovski company is a big philanthropist. What is lovely about this clutch is it pairs nicely with a black dress, or a high-end styled, sexy pair of jeans.
If you want to support the breast cancer awareness, the Lauren Merkin clutch is perfect. Find it online for $275.

Three of my all time favorite scents are rolled into one fabulous home fragrance and it is supporting a good cause. Now this is a must have product for me!
Antica Farmacista's Home Ambiance Peonie, Gardenia and Rose fragrance uses antique inspired apothecary bottles, filled with fragrance, to permeate the air in any room. It is a beautiful way to infuse your home with the smells of summer, when summer days have past by.
This month of October, Antica Farmacista is donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the Peonie, Gardenia and Rose to support Gilda's Club, which is now a part of the Cancer Support Community, a nonprofit organization that offers communities free support for anyone living with cancer - men, women, teens and children - along with their families and friends. a
"Gilda's Club is named in honor of Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989. Gilda dreamed that all people affected by cancer, as well as their families and friends, would have access to the same kind of emotional and social support that she received during her illness."
